RECYCLING

Logo Landscape

a restoration, re-use and recycling program for
wigs, hairpieces, hair extensions and hair scraps

What started as just a seed of an idea to keep wigs and hairpieces out of landfills has grown into something that we never imagined! In the past two years since our recycling program was started,  it has truly taken on a life of its own through the support of like-minded donors. We are passionate about this mission and seeing it succeed. The Wig Cycle has recently applied for 501(c)3 status in an effort to give this program all the nourishment it needs to grow.

HOW TO HELP

HAIR DONATION

RESTORE – Beauty Technicians from The Wig Station volunteer their time and talents to restore pieces that still have some life to them. Any pieces that can be restored are donated to local organizations to get them into the hands of those who cannot afford their own. Each donated piece is gifted in new packaging and comes with care instructions and a brand new wig cap or wig grip (wigs only).

RE-USE –  our Reuse Community Outreach stretches beyond any other program. Current organizations that are benefiting from these reconditioned pieces are women’s shelters, oncology patients. Dress For Success. lbgtq+ resource centers, as well as stylists who donate their skills to those in need.

RECYCLE – our commitment to recycling distinguishes The Wig Cycle from other hair donation programs.  Pieces that have reached the end of their life cycle are bundled and sent to TerraCycle to be properly recycled into polymer pellets (synthetic hair) and fertilizer (human hair).
